    Three aircraft from the New York Air National Guard’s 106th Rescue Wing — an HC-130J Combat King II search and rescue airplane and two HH-60G Pave Hawk search and rescue helicopters — will take off from the Frances S. Gabreski Air National Guard Base in Westhampton at 12 p.m., the rescue wing said on Facebook. 

    The aircraft will fly over locations including Stony Brook Southampton Hospital and Nassau University Medical Center. A full list of the locations on the flyover path is posted on the 106th Rescue Wing’s Facebook page. 

    Nassau County Executive Laura Curran on Thursday tweeted out a flier with a map of the flight path. 

    “Please do not travel to see the flyover,” the flier advises. “Enjoy from where you are.”
